If you’re experiencing perimenopause symptoms, or are already in menopause, you’re probably the right age to remember taking those chewable Flintstone multivitamins as a kid. Back then, everyone seemed to take those chalky orange and grape flavored cartoon characters — and they were enough like candy that it was almost a treat.
In adulthood, choosing a multivitamin is nowhere as much fun. For one thing, looking for a supplement formulated for women of a certain age is another reminder that we’re getting older. And for another, there are so many different options on the market, who knows which one to choose? That’s why we love Ritual vitamins ($35 for a one-month supply). They make it easy by giving you exactly what you need — and none of what you don’t.
How much do people love Ritual vitamins? Well, they currently sell a bottle of vitamins every 16 seconds, on average. The vegan-friendly, clinically-tested, science-backed formulas are made especially for women over 18, women over 50, and women who are pregnant (or trying to get pregnant).
Ritual’s Essential for Women 50+ multivitamins contain eight essential nutrients that women who have stopped having monthly periods need. If you look on a bottle of vitamins you pull off the shelf in the drugstore, you’ll probably find far more ingredients than that — but do you really need them? The scientists who created Ritual say no, because most of us already get much of what we need through food. They also worked hard to make sure the vitamins and minerals in their supplement are easily-absorbable, so your body can actually use them.
To support healthy aging, Ritual vitamins for women 50+ contain:
- Vitamin K2
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin D3
- Vitamin B12
All ingredients are certified vegan, so if you follow a plant-based diet, you don’t need to worry that you’re ingesting something you’d rather not. The vitamin D3, which helps support normal immune function, is sourced from lichen, while Omega-3 from microalgae supports heart health. Calcium-helper vitamins D3 and K2 help maintain bone health, as do magnesium and boron, and chelated magnesium and vitamin D3 contribute to normal muscle function.
